treasurer.. 40-vU,
We have in this city a veritable
young Barnum, a twelve-years-old, Ne
braska lad that will some day make his
mark, in assisting his fellow-men to
amuse themselves. He met a Journal
reporter Friday morning and wanted to
know the cost of an advertisement for a
show, reading something like this: "On
next Saturday there will be a minstrel
show in Fuller's barn. The entertain
ment will be preceded by a free exhibi
tion on a tight rope. Admission to the
show, five picture cards." Don be
ashamed, boys, of your feeblest r rts
in the way of rational amuseu.nt
pure fun, alive. Every well-built man
has passed through the same stage of
preparation, and can relate you incident
upon incident of life in "awful childhood
dear" the improvised cirens, the me
nagerie, the armies, the snow forts, the
pitched battles, in which blows were
given and blows were received, and real,
red blood actually streamed from hurt
noses; men say that they have put away
childish things, but Pope suggests that
perhaps the angels exhibit Newton much
as we would an ape, and so, life is a
matter of degree, after all, and not an
essential difference in kind, the sports
of youth become the serious business of
older years; vigorous physical manhood
ought to lie indicative of strong mental
grip and spiritual strength, but don't
forget young Coolidge's show next Sat
urday at Fuller's barn.
Once in a while refractory black
guards who attend school wake up the
wrong passenger, and it would bo a good
thing for somo boys who go to school for
mischief if they could be put through
like Edgar Farmer, the teacher of the
Mount Hope, Indiana, schools, did tho
other day. The account of it says:
"Quite a number of the older Doys in at
tendance had been guilty of obscene con
duct toward the young ladies of the
school, and the facts coming to the no
tice of the teacher he resolved to punish
the guilty parties. He called out Chas.
Delph, who is nearly grown, for the pur
pose of thrashing him. As Delph left
his seat he was joined by four of his
schoolmates, when they all assaulted the
teacher at once. Farmer knocked his
assailants right and left, locked tho door,
and, pulling off his coat, fought the en
tire party single-handed, and succeeded
in thoroughly subtitling the refractory
pupils, but not until he had given each
one a pair of black eyes and a bloody
nose as mementos of his pugilistic skill.
After the dust had settled the regular
school programme was resumed as
though nothing had occurred, and Mr.
Farmer is master of the situation."
It was a wonderful snow, that of
Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.
Numerous old settlers comparing notes
concluded they had never seen so much
heavy snow, fall in so short a time. It
fell here two feet on the level, and came
down in a solid, business-like manner.
The truth is we have never known what
we regard so fortunate a thing for Ne
braska. There had, for many months,
iieen a comparatively light fall of rain,
but this will give the 6oiI a most excel
lent soaking and do no injury.

- The Schuyler Herald says that Julia
Parsons, the year old little daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Parsons, is very sick
with scarlet fever; also that the constant
presence of diphtheria in Schuyler mer
its the immediate attention of the city
fathers. No city is justified in tempo
rizing with that disease, and so long as
valuable lives may be lost the authori
ties should not cease in their efforts to
get rid of one of the worst diseases that
ever afflicted the little people.
Fun is all riight, and really there is
not much of it, unless there is some dan
ger connected with it, but the fun
should bo confined to those engaged in
it, and not run riot against others. At
Central City Thursday afternoon, so says
the Nonpareil, T. L. Hanson was struck
in the eye by a snow ball and suffered
very severe injuries. The eye is badly
hurt, lieing swelled entirely shut, but it
is hoped the sight is not permanently

A Horrible Crime.
Tuesday night a fearful crime was
committed at Clarks, Merrick county.
A fiend iu human shape entered tho
dwelling of J. B. Cowles, a banker at
that place, taking from a window a pane
of glass, loosening the fastening of tho
window. A chisel was found, with which
it is supposed tho glass was removed.
Mr. Cowles, hearing a noise, got up to
investigate and on opening a door was
struck on tho forehead, evidently by a
man witit brass knuckles. The robber
or robliers stepped over Mr. Cowles's
body and on into the bed-room to quiet
Mrs. Cowles. Mr. Cowles does not know
how long he lay unconscious, but when
ho revived he seemed nearly frozen, and
staggering to Jus feet, he returned to
the bed-room to find his wife's lifeless
hotly, with no marks of violence except
the imprint of a hand upon her mouth
and face. The little boy slept through
it all.
Tho bureau was ransacked. About
$TA or 00 in cash was taken, but ap
parently tho thief or thieves didn't want
any jewelry, as two gold watches, dia
mond ear rings, a diamond finger ring
and othor articles of jewelry were dis
placed but not taken. In the road wer
found part of tho tools used, Mr.
Cowles's pants and empty pockclliook,
also a jewelry case with the jewelry still
in it.
There is no clue to tho fiend except
that ho is a man of medium bight, had
on a dark overcoat and slouch hat, and
below the eyes was disguised with some
sort of a mask.
Mr. Cowles offers a reward of $1,000
for the conviction of the murderer, and
the village authorities will doubtless add
to the amount.
Mr. Cowles is a banker at Chirks, and
had resided there several years; liefore
that ho was tho U. P. agent at Genoa,
prior to that an employe of tho company
in Saunders county; previous to that, a
farmer in Platte county. His wife was
a lady of very amiable disposition, and
it is no wonder that Mr. Cowles is al
most distracted with grief.
Nick Blacer in a letter to Gus.
Becher says that at Tacoma, Wash., ho
met M. If. White, Georgo Wandell and
tho Siegenthaler Bros.; at Colfax, John
Knoliel; at Portland, G. Heitkemper, all
doing well, and all contented. He thinks
Oregon and Washington sro good, but
that California beats all. They have
flowers, fresh vegetables, salads, etc., in
California, and although eggs are 0 and
40 cents a dozen, and butter as much
per pound, good meals can be had for
25 cents, with wine at dinner, instead of
coffee; wine sells at ol) to .r0 cents a gal
lon. The most beautiful country he has
seen was between Oregon City and
Eugene, and tho best land near Salem.
A picturesque journey it is, over the

Last Wednesday night an interest
ing incident at the U. P. depot attracted
attention for a little while. Yardmaster
Charles McCaffrey was out looking after
trains, and in endeavoring to couple two
cars, missed the connection, and at the
same time was struck on the head.
Feeling strange and faint, he got out of
the way, and made for the depot. He
didn't fall in a faint, but the feeling ho
had was most queer and perplexing, and
it seemed to him that his head had lieen
squeezed lietween the cars, and yet he
couldn't just make out how it was.
When he entered the depot, he got the
laugh from everybody, and to his dazed
expression they answered him that his
hat was crowned with a stack of snow
that gave him a very odd appearance.
The bumping of the cars together, had
thrown the snow on him, imagination
had done the remainder.

The business and professional men
of Platte and adjoining counties, which,
of course, includes everybody who has
business to transact with newspapers, or
through newspapers with the public; all
who wish to reach the public for purpo
poses of their own individual concern,
are hereby informed that we will dupli
cate the prices of any of our contempo
raries. This refers to advertising and to
rates for job work of all kinds. Locals
5 cents a line; displayed advertisements
running for a few issues, 25 cents an
inch, single-column, first issue; two
thirds thiit, each subsequent issue. We
have no old job-presses, and do the best
of commercial and legal printing. tf
The Shining l.isliN
world, soldiers, statesmen and
:, all write in the most ex
travagant praise of our facilities for
travel in America. And we are entitled
to tho praise. On every English line
there is the samo old dusty lunch coun
ter, known by all tourists for these many
years. Not even a drink of water, nor a
crust of bread to be had on the train.
No wonder our trans-atlantic friends
express amazement when they sit down
to a hotel dinner on ono of tho palace
dining cars on the Union and Southern
Pacific railways- an arrangement which
is the most perfect in the country today.

fhc figure 9 in our dates will make a long stay.
No man or woman now living will ever date a
locument without using the figure 0. It stands
in the third place in 1880, where it will remain ten
years and then move up to second place in 1800,
where it will rest for one hundred years.
There is another "9" which has also come to stay.
It Is unlike the figure 9 in our dates in the respect
that it has already moved up to first place, where
It will permanently remain. It Is called the "No.
i" High Ann Wheeler A Wilson Sewing Machine.
The "No. 9" was endorsed for first place by the
experts of Europe at the Paris Exposition of 1889,
where, after a severecontest with the leading ma
chines of the world, it was awarded tho only
Grand Prize given to family sewing machines, all
others on exhibit liaving received lower awards
of gold medals, etc. The French Government
also recognized its superiority by thedecoration of
Jl r. Nathaniel Wheeler, President of the company,
with the Cross of the Legion of Honor.
Tho "No. 9" is not an old machine improved
upon, but is an entirely new machine, and tho
Gruml Prize at Paris was awarded it as the grand
est advance in sewing machine mechanism of the
ngc. Those who buy it can rest assured, there,
fore, of liaving the very latest and best.
